You may wonder if it’s absolutely necessary to spend time and money getting your oil changed. Why does Land Rover recommend changing your oil regularly and what difference will it make? The benefits of regular oil changes are numerous. Here are the top four reasons you should get your oil changed regularly.
Engine Oil 101
Engine oil is a cleaner, coolant, and a lubricant. Engine oil contains detergents that keep internal moving parts clean. As a lubricant, oil reduces friction and keeps your engine from overheating. Engine oil breaks down over time and loses its effectiveness. Automotive technicians recommend changing your oil every three months or 3,000 miles. But with newer engine technologies, high-performance synthetic oils, and depending on your driving habits, you may be able to go up to 5,000 miles between oil changes.
Four reasons you should get regular oil changes
1. Improved Gas Mileage
Clean oil reduces deposits and friction that slow your engine down, sending you to the pump more often. Get regular oil changes for better fuel economy. You’ll love the higher MPG plus fewer fill-ups mean you’ll save money.
2. Helps Vehicles Pass Emissions Test
Dirty oil causes hydrocarbons to develop in the crankcase causing noxious emissions. Clean oil reduces harmful emissions. Your technician can detect other potential problems and repair them before your next emissions test. Regular oil change service saves you money and helps protect the environment.
3. Protects Vehicle Parts
Clean oil protects the vehicle’s moving parts. Engine oil lubricates the crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistons. It lubricates cylinder walls allowing for better compression. It also lubricates the camshaft, the valve train, and exhaust valves. Regular oil changes keep your engine clean ensuring a smoother, quieter ride.
4. Lengthens Engine Life
Changing your oil and filter keeps dirt and debris from causing excessive engine wear and prevents engine breakdowns. An oil filter sifts out debris which, if left, may cause clogging and engine failure. Change your filter with every other oil change to ensure safe engine operation. Investing in regular oil changes and filter replacements is the best way to extend the life of your engine.
